About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Loving these!

More Batman please!

Cord thing

The "cord thing" in the upper left is the end of a short rope attached to what were called "klieg" or "keg" lights. The rope was used to hold the coiled up power cord when the lights were stored. The loop seen was hung on one of the adjustable swivel knobs on the side of the light. Originally klieg lights were carbon arc lights, but the term was often used for keg shaped conventional lighting units. The bulbs used were larger than a fist, and were 500 and 1000 watt. They were used for both movie and still photography. I still have one in my basement darkroom.

A Canaletto

The painting: Entrance to the Grand Canal: from the West End of the Molo is in the National Museum of Art in Washington.

"Goodnight Kiss" by Amos Sewell

On the table a "Saturday Evening Post" from 1962-07-28.

Holy shivers, Batman

Robin must be chilly, even with the bright lights. He's wearing long underwear or tights. Comic book Robin went bare-legged.

More Bat Innuendo

You meant the Baturday Evening Post, right?

Subway Strap?

What the heck is that cord thing in the upper left? I am assuming it's something for filming.

[Judging by how out-of-focus it is, it's relatvely small and hanging close to the camera. -tterrace]

So sorry

Sorry, but I can't help laughing...they look so ridiculous!!! I love Robin's exquisite and imaginative mask! Ah, the 60s had some crappy TV.

Shorpy within Shorpy

Kinda looks like a photo from Shorpy framed on the wall above the sofa. To the Bat Cave!

How many times

How many times have I told you to keep your feet off the table!

Look Magazine

might have cropped the Saturday Evening Post out of the shot.


The Bat-Implications of this Bat-Picture are inconsistent with the presence of The Saturday Evening Post on the coffee table.
